Aston Villa Prediction – Can Villa pull away from bottom three?

Villa Park will pay its respects to former Aston Villa manager, Ron Saunders, who managed Villa, Birmingham City and West Brom during his career, and Sunday’s hosts will be hoping they can give Ron a decent send off by grabbing all three points against Leicester City.

However, with just 1 win out of their last 6 matches which came in the shape of a 2-0 home win against Newcastle United, Villa look to be hard-pressed to replicate this result against an in-form Leicester City who now have a clear shot at 2nd place following Manchester City’s derby loss.

This recent 6-match sequence has also resulted in 4 defeats for Villa who have suffered losses against Manchester City 3-0, Liverpool 2-1, Wolves 2-1 and a 2-1 loss to Chelsea, in what admittedly has been a tough set of fixtures!

Results at home though have picked up for The Villains who possess an overall home record of 3-2-2 10/7 but includes just 1 defeat from their last 6 matches and also consists of wins against Everton, Brighton and the aforementioned Newcastle United – all of whom sit in the lower half of the division.

Leicester City Prediction – Can Leicester City consolidate 2nd place?

With Manchester City losing 2-1 at home to their local rivals, United, in the evening clash on Saturday, the way is now clear for Brendan Rodgers’ side to further consolidate their place behind runaway Premier League leaders, Liverpool, as they make their way across the midlands to face Aston Villa on Sunday afternoon.

Leicester City already hold a 3-point cushion over Manchester City but this lead could be extended to 6 points with a win at Villa Park, and having won their last 7 matches on the trot in the top flight, The Foxes are building ominous momentum under Rodgers.

The impressive winning streak includes winning their last 3 away matches on the trot which includes the incredible 9-0 win at Southampton which was followed by back-to-back 2-0 victories on the road at Crystal Palace and Brighton respectively.

Just as ominous (for Villa) has been the goalscoring form of Leicester striker Jamie Vardy (14 goals) who has netted in his last 7 consecutive matches in the top flight, and will no doubt be looking to make it 8 on the trot on Sunday as Leicester seek a fifth away win this season.

 

Key-Facts – Aston Villa vs Leicester City

  • Aston Villa have won just 1 of their last 6 matches overall in the Premier League
  • Leicester City have won last 7 matches on the trot in the Premier League
  • Leicester City have won last 3 away matches on the trot

 

Betting Tips Verdict

Aston Villa’s recent form at Villa Park has been steady but can they contain a rampant Vardy and Leicester City outfit here?
